15 years of Poland in the European Union

For many people, membership of the European Union is almost normal. However, it cannot be denied that the changes that took place in 2004 had a major impact on all areas of economic and social life in our country in the following years. Membership benefits are undeniable. Just look at the balance of payments and withdrawals from the EU cash register. During these 15 years, Poland received net, i.e. after transfers from EU treaties over EUR 100 billion, i.e. at today’s EUR / PLN exchange rate over PLN 430 billion! To see how big this amount is, just look at this year’s Polish budget, which is PLN 387 billion.

It must also be admitted that Poland, looking generally at all these 15 years, used the EU funds in a satisfactory manner. Initially, there were considerable formal difficulties, even with completing the applications, but over time national institutions gained experience, as well as public awareness in the context of the existence of various forms of assistance from the EU increased, which allowed optimal use of funds. Funds from the cohesion fund were used primarily for infrastructure, including roads and motorways. For example, when we entered the EU, highways were only 500 km, while today it is already 1630 km. Farmers will not complain either. The billions of euros that went under direct payments allowed us to significantly modernize the Polish countryside, breeding and cultivating plants. Exports to the EU have also increased significantly. It increased almost five times.

Poles want to be in the EU, according to surveys, CBOS declares over 90%, and appreciate the benefits of being a member. It is mainly about the growth of the Polish economy and the growing quality of life. More and more Poles also appreciate the role of the European Parliament and thus declare a greater desire to participate in elections to this body.
